TRUE to her roots as a Girl Scout and environmentalist, Long Beach resident Diana Lejins stopped to assist this mother Mallard duck and her six ducklings crossing Clark Avenue at Wardlow on Saturday. The little ones needed a hand getting up the curb. The mother seemed confused and hissed at her would-be rescuers. She tried to cross back to the Skylinks golf course, but traffic was heavy. Diana solicited help from neighbors, traffic was halted and the seven birds were herded across the busy street and safely into the green.
